Update on MadRat Mania Challenge

"Juggling Dormice"

MadRat Mania Challenge entry by Pamela Blais. She used the left & right Dormouse stamps from the Alice in Wonderland page & the Flower Rope border on the Banners, Borders & Frames page. Thanks Pamela!

Well, folks, entries in my 1st ever challenge have been kinda sparse so I thought I'd open it up to projects using any MadRat Rubber stamps images & extend the deadline till June 20th, the Summer Solstice.

Here's a recap of the challenge,

This is an open challenge, all that I require is;

1.You must use at least 1 if not more, of any stamp from MadRatRubber

2. You must agree to let me use a photo of your entry on my Blog, (you are here) & in my MadRat Rubber Gallery. All copyrights/ownership of artwork remain with the creators and I can't be held responsible for any unauthorized copying or distribution of your images from either of my sites. Ya put stuff on the web & there's no controlling it! Submitting an entry into the challenge is your consent!

3. Entry must be received by June 20th 2008, I don’t know about the rest of you but I like to have a little time to work on my projects!

Style, subject matter & media are totally open. I just want to see what you can do with my stamps! Feel free to combine your project with other challenges, if you do the Gothic Arch challenge, use some of my stamps & enter it on my blog, working on an altered book? Send in a photo of the finished page where you’ve used my stamps. Like to stamp on fabric or in clay? Send me a photo of the finished piece; I don’t care what you make just as long as it incorporates at least one MadRat Rubber stamp.

4. You do not have to send in your artwork, just make sure you send a good photo, if you have a blog, post your entry on your blog, let me know it’s there & I’ll come copy & paste it onto my blog, (with a link back to your blog). If you don’t have a blog, email your photo or point me to your online photo account. No more than 2 entries per person. If you enter something early on & decide you want to enter something else instead, let me know & I'll remove the previous entry & add the new one. I'll post all entries on my blog so everybody can see the final results.

If you need a little inspiration or something to spark some ideas, check out the Projects, Inspiration & Challenges section on the right hand column of my blog.

And Yes, there will be prizes!

1st place $50.00 in rubber credit
2nd place $35.00 in rubber credit
3rd place $20.00 in rubber credit

Prizes are rubber credits @ MadRatRubber, meaning you’ll have a credit on the books for your prize amount, to be applied towards the purchase of rubber stamps. Shipping cost will be the responsibility of the winner.

For those of you who haven't any MadRat Rubber stamps or would like to use some of the new images, there's still plenty of time to place an order & recieve them in time to get creative. All of the new images are noted on the website with links from the home page to the sections where the New images can be found.

Most orders are shipped Priority, but for orders of um rubber only or other small non breakable items, feel free to request 1st class shipping to save on postage. I ship orders pretty quick so make sure you either leave a note in the message section at check out or email me separately after you place your order & I'll refund the difference via Paypal.
Other News

2 new sections have been recently added, I now have a Grab Bag page, for those of you who like a little serendipity in your life (and art). 5 different selections are available & you'll save up to 50% off regular prices. The 2nd section is Ephemera where I've added some vintage tickets & labels. (here's a sample)

I've re-stocked the magnifiers and added some other interesting item's for your creative endeavors, some of which are, Milagro's, some cool plastic people in various sizes, 2 faced beads, new buttons, ribbons,charms etc., etc., so if you haven't been by for a while, stop by & check it out.

Birthday Club

Now, if you're still reading this, I've decided to start a Birthday Club. If you'd like to join, just email your birthday information in to me and I'll send you a coupon when your birth month rolls around, if it's April 10 the coupon will be good for the whole month of April. This way you can get yourself a present & save a little dough in the bargain.
